Wiccans/Pagans/etc: Do you ever meet people who are excited to tell you about your faith, but get things wrong?
But what do you do when they say things that are just wrong?
My cousin-in-law (cousin by marriage? What's the proper term?) Has a class on Wicca and Magic and associated topics. He asked me o come the three hours up to talk about Rroma magic and remedies, well, as much as was proper.
One of his students was really enthusiastic, and must have thoought I was a new student, and started telling me all about wicca, which was fine, as I don't know that much about it, but then she started saying stuff about the Celts that was really inaccurate, and I know Will wouldn't teach her, and I didn't know how to go about correcting her historical inaccuracies, or even if I should.
I mean, the idea that the Celts believed in a goddess that created the universe is really far out there, considering they believed in something analogous to the big bang, historically, and so is the secret witch-cult idea.
So how do you handle a situation where someone is trying to tell you about your faith, but gets things wrong?
